I’ve struggled for years with trust. Trusting people, trusting promises, trusting God. It’s as if I always expect for the rain to come, even in the good times. Even though I know that God has seen me through some dark tunnels, and even though I know I am better for them, others around me are better for them, I still dread those hard times. During the times of sunshine, I’m always gazing at the horizon anticipating the rain cloud.
I know exactly where this lack of trust comes from. It is learned over years spent living in fear. Years spent having the rug ripped out from under me. But I don’t want to live with the past constantly haunting me. I don’t want to live in it’s shadow. I want to learn to trust.
To take God as His word and know that because He has seen me through my past, He’s got my future, too. Because He is a God who keeps His promises and never changes, He is worthy of my trust.
I’m going to begin participating in Five Minute Friday over on Kate’s blog to give myself a little break from my regular writing on overacup.org. Five Minute Friday is writing for five minutes no stopping no editing. If you’d like to read more posts on the word Trust , come join us on Kate’s blog. We’d love to have you!
